  • anyone purchased from the Epson refurbished store before?

    Considering an ecotank

  • I only buy laser printers and save money.

    • I read that it depends on how much you are printing. 2000p/month or 20p/month.

      • +3

        If you are printing 20p/month you shouldn't buy a $399 injket either.

      • 20p/month

        If I only print 20 pages per month, I go to Officeworks and save even more especially on color prints.
        But it also depends on if you need color text with some background or photo quality, still you save a lot of money.

        • Thanks.
          I print ~20p/month and I live 15 minutes (by car) from the nearest OfficeWorks.
          I bought a $40 inkjet printer (during promotion), and had to through it away after about a year - which is a big environmental issue, I think.
          So which printer should I have? (we also scan quite often. Something with an ADF like the one in OP's is preferred. The $40 printer didn't have ADF, only flatbed).

          • @Averell:

            I assume you look for a very low budget printer so forget ADF and colour printing.
            I think you need a colour multifunction laser printer which does scanning and printing and the cheapest you can find is $450-500.
            Brothers printers have the best value for the money.

          need to factor in driving cost to OW at roughly $2.2 per 10km or else other mode costs.

    • Any suggestions for a good value model

  • Based on this it would be a cheaper way to get genuine cartridges as this model comes with xl cartridges by default.


    I had a a4 brother mfc which I replaced with an a3 brother mfc a while ago. I don't update the firmware and run non oem cartridges which makes it cheap. If you need a device to scan and print where you are they do the job and probably better than a laser in a confined space.

    The Brother INKvestment A4 Inkjet Printer MFC-J4540DW from Officeworks seems to be a better deal at $329.

  • To my knowledge, from cursory research, points to acknowledge:

    Brother's INKvestment printers mean merely larger cartridges?! If we want to use cheaper alternative carts or refill, we still have to solve the chip problem; preferably once and for all. Interestingly, Canon did provide an official workaround for their anti-consumer chips (because there was a shortage), where no other brand has?

    Also of note, Brother's cartridges are used to fill internal reservoirs the same as non-INKvestment models, I believe. As if they couldn't expose said tanks externally to use easy refill bottles like how Epson EcoTank printers are designed for our convenience.

    One caveat to these fixed tank designs would be a hindrance to forcibly injecting a cleaning solution to clear out print head nozzles of blockages if it comes to that - and it will. Print head clean cycles waste an insane amount of ink, that's all I know, whether or not it reduces the life of the printer in one or more ways…

    One eventuality to discover with all sub $1000 Epson is you can't change/service the maintenance tank and/or reset some counter, that has the consequence, after some predetermined amount of usage, your Epson is coded to quit printing altogether! Built-in obsolescence! The Brother equivalent — I'm not yet aware of any such artificially imposed limitation — seems to use a shallow plastic depression where ink is dumped during its routine maintenance and can be cleaned out with paper towel.

    I opted for an A3 print & A3 scan Brother MFC-J6940DW for $399, ten days later Officeworks were selling it for $328. Its vast feature set (including config free but not necessarily app free printing via NFC) is identical to the twice as expensive INKvestment models but be mindful of ink cost savings if any.

  • 150 capacity tray is a bit small??

    I've not found anything to replace my HL2140
